Scientific Evidence

Early and Safe Mobilization Even in Acute Care
“The mobilization by means of Erigo is a well-tolerated method of mobilization and can be considered a safe system of early mobilization of patients with severe brain injuries.”
(Rocca et al. 2016)

“Robotic tilt-table exercise with or without FES is safe and may be more effective in improving leg strength and cerebral blood flow than tilt table alone.”
(Kuznetsov et al. 2013)

Cardiovascular Stabilization
“Patients in vegetative or minimally conscious state tolerate greater degrees of head-up tilt better with simultaneous leg movement.”
(Luther et al. 2008)

“Blood pressures and heart rate can be stabilized better with treatment with passive leg movements.”
(Taveggia et al. 2015)

Improved Orthostatic Tolerance Using the Erigo FES
“Cyclic FES to the leg muscles can effectively induce venous return, thereby helping to maintain the blood pressure of individuals with spinal cord injury under orthostatic stress.”
(Yoshida et al. 2013)
 
Reduction in Severe Complications
“An apparent reduction in severe complications and no increase in total complications with an early mobilization protocol after acute ischemic stroke was found.”
(Diserens et al. 2012)

Improved Short-Term and Long-Term Functional and Neurological Outcomes
“An intensive stepping verticalization protocol, started since the acute stages of a severe acquired brain injury, improves the short-term and long-term functional and neurological outcome of patients with disorder of consciousness.”
(Frazzitta et al. 2016)

Decreased Intensive Care Unit Length of Stay
“A mobility team initiated earlier physical therapy that was feasible, safe, did not increase costs, and was associated with decreased intensive care unit and hospital length of stay.”
(Morris et al. 2008)
